We rented No 56 which we did direct with the owners through the HomeAway website. It's a lovely development and has a reception area which is the working heart of the whole place. Even though I booked No 56 privately the villa is maintained and run partly via the main hub at reception (ie taking care of any problems etc). Phillipa and Carola are the gems of this place! They really know how to look after the guests and sort out any problems, truly wonderful people and will book through them and their website next time. The reason I have not given 5 stars is directly because of the owners of the villa. No wifi (which it said it had) and the air conditioning was broken and wasn't told about it even though the owners knew and it appears are not hurrying to get it fixed. We paid and extra £200 to have the pool heated and that packed up for 3 days and of course won't be seeing £60 returned. Phillipa and Carola made sure I got wifi which was issued via them (a Vodafone stick on a base) and rightly charged the owner. Evidently the previous guests had the same problems as we had encountered. Loved the area and the development and the girls that run the place but am not impressed with the owners of No 56 and thankfully won't have to deal with them ever again.
